The BJP government in Haryana proposes to introduce Bhagavad Gita in school curriculum in the state.

“A consultation process will be set in motion soon to work out the modalities for introduction of Bhagavad Gita in school curriculum in the state,” Haryana Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma told PTI here today.

On being asked by when it would be introduced, Sharma said a committee of eminent educationalists would be formed soon to work out the details for inclusion of Bhagavad Gita and expressed hope that the plan would be implemented in the next academic session.

“The thought (of including Bhagavad Gita in curriculum) would be considered threadbare before taking a final decision,” he said.

Sharma said the “thought” was getting support from various quarters, including from Islamic seminary Darul Uloom.

“The Darul Uloom at Deoband has also supported the thought,” the Education Minister claimed.

“I am getting thousands of messages from across the world extending support on the proposal to introduce Bhagavad Gita in the curriculum,” he said, adding, all the suggestions and messages being received would also be placed before the committee after which a final decision would be taken.

He said that he had suggested introducing Bhagavad Gita in the school curriculum at the Education Ministers seminar organised by Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani in Delhi on January 6.

“I hope the issue will also be considered at the central level,” he said.

    (1) Getting support from various quarters, including from Islamic seminary Darul Uloom.This is a very positive move . [2] the Gita is a world renowned granth , accepted globally. main reason for the Germans learning sanskrit is to derive maximum benefits from the excellent literature & life styles taught in Gita & the related ancient hindu granths.
